Here are some of the errors spotted in the New Philippine Peso Bills:

1000 peso bill – the location of the Tubbataha Reefs is a few hundred kilometers from where it really is.

500 peso bill – the Puerto Princesa Subterranean Park appeared to be inland when it is not, the blue-naped parrot bears the wrong colors as the beak should be red and not yellow while the tail should be yellow and not green.

The scientific names in the new banknotes are also incorrectly written as the scientific name was not italicized and the second word in the name should not begin with a capital letter. Moreover, the map of the Philippines, which is featured on six different bills exclude the Batanes island group.
